    ★★★½

    On second (ed: apparently third; my excuse: Nicole Kidman is hot) viewing, a film I think is weirdly underappreciated. Not so much a remake, as a self-decrepatingly deranged postmodern take on the idea of Hollywood remakes. I like Kidman and Ferrrell, so it mostly comes off as charming, but any film where Michael Caine plays the Green Giant is just weird as fuck.

    ★½

    Just tired, 3/4 of the main cast do what they can, but they can't overcome the obviousness of the plot and that Zach Galifanakis is a laugh-sucking machine.

    Third-rate paperback writer bullshit pretending its not. Ace cinematography from Roger Deakins.

    A pastel-drenched trainwreck. Too dopey and shrill to take seriously as any sort of satire; whether it be of consumerism, chemicals in products, or late Seventies culture. Network for retards.
